The Stonebridge United Methodist Church Men’s group will host their third annual “Cruizin’ For A Cause” car, truck and cycle show on Saturday, May 7 from 8 a.m. to noon. This year’s beneficiary will be Family Promise of Collin County.
"Family Promise is truly a program of the community we live in. Its existence, strength and success lie within the support of local faith congregations, their volunteers and community volunteers," said Sheila Miller, Director of Family Promise, “there is power in volunteers walking along side a family struggling with homelessness; sharing a meal and conversation allowing moments of normalcy; and providing a safe refuge where the families and their children can truly rest. Every volunteer and donor who donates a gas card, cooks a meal, provides for immediate needs, or shares their lives with our guest families also share in that family's success as they move back toward self sustainable independence."
“The Stonebridge UMC Men’s group, along with around 50 volunteers from the congregation hosts the event. A core team of volunteers began meeting 6 months prior to the event to begin planning,” said Todd Adkins, Stonebridge UMC car show coordinator. “We have been blessed to have so many of our sponsors return for this year. This speaks to their willingness to generously give of their time and resources to support a great cause and it also speaks well of the team of volunteers that run the event each year. The fact that we can help a family go from homeless to sustained independence through the funds raised at events like this inspires our team to make this show the best yet.”
100% of the funds raised will go directly to support Family Promise. Stonebridge United Methodist Church is one of 12 host congregations in Collin County that support Family Promise throughout the year and they are extremely excited to continue their support through the car show event.
Admission and registration are free and the show is open to all years, makes and models of cars, trucks and cycles. Registration will take place the morning of the show and the first 100 to register their vehicles will receive a commemorative dash plaque. Awards for show participants and door prizes will be given throughout the show.
The event is free, but donations will be accepted. Be sure to come to the show hungry, as there will have on-site concessions available.
